Good Morning Kicksters!<br><br>
We have one good morning left before rain and sleet return to the Commonwealth. I decided to start pushing up my midweek mileage ahead of Boston, so I went for a 10 miler today. That's 32 miles in 3 days and I'll be damned I feel it. Glad that's over. 10 miles, 1:25:31, 8:33 pace overall. Probably end up on a TM tomorrow crying for my momma.<br><br>
Good runs all,<br>

6 easy miles in 54 minutes accompanied by David Bowie. With 5x100 meter striders in the last 2.5 miles for turnover.<br><br>
Today's going to be a hot one - near 90 degrees expected. It's forecast to be in the upper 40's for the low on Thursday/Friday. Big difference.<br><br>

Nice 10's Mike and Peter<br>
Breeger.. 90!! OMG!<br><br>
Perfect running weather today and all recovered from Saturday's race so swapped tomorrows m-LR for today's planned recovery. That way I'll have more receovery before the Fri/Sat desert racing <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
So.. 13 mi in 1:51:18 (8:34 pace, AHR 150). The first 5 mi were with Tory at 9:18 pace and the next 8 mi @8:06 pace with AHR 152. Just perfect!<br>
It was one of those, whisper quiet feet swooshing on the pavement type runs.<br><br>

Hello Mike, Peter, Bill, Perch, & Rosie!<br><br>
The local crud caught me yesterday and went straight to my chest. No running for now. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"><br><br>
Rosie, you can borrow some of my miles if you want to measure one of your runs.

<span><span style="font-family:Arial;">Good morning everyone. I ran vicariously through unmiled time Rose and whisper feet swooshing Perch. XT scheduled for today so I biked to work. Snow and freezing rain changed to rain by the time I rode in. Only skidded once. Forecast is for snow/sleet mix for the ride home then snow overnight. 8 miles round trip in soup. Sure craving a run today but probably should save it for tomorrow. Already looking forward to the hills; colder and with fresh snow. Great runs.... embrace the slush, snow, heat, or whatever.<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"></span></span><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">(((millbot)))</span>

Good morning, it's about to sleet/snow here in NY. I did a 1 mile walk w/u & c/d and 3 miles on the TM this morning. Felt pretty good!<br><br>
We got a phone call at 10:33pm last night and my heart went into my throat. DH's kids are real screw-ups so I anticipated some sort of problem (usually an urgent request for money) but instead it was my daughter who announced that she just got engaged. So now my oldest son and my daughter are both engaged! Could be that 2009 will be a big year for weddings around here.<br><br>

Congratulations, Riley -- now if you can only get them to plan their own weddings... (MS did, and it was frabjous.)<br><br>
I had a yuccy walk-joglet today, on the driveway and street out in front, waiting for the phone company to come fix the phones they say aren't broken. 40 minutes, 2.3 miles, (and here's the real mistake) BEFORE COFFEE!<br><br>
A good day to all...

Good morning. Get well soon, <b>Millbot</b>, and please don't pass it to the rest of us!<br><br><b>Riley</b>, congrats on the good news! No weddings on our kids' horizons. Rats.<br><br><b>Pink</b>, nice run to start your day <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><b>Perch</b> is really running well.<br><br>
Today is MrC's 49th birthday. Since he left town today we won't celebrate until the weekend. At least he's in the city where our eldest son lives so they are planning to go to dinner tonight.<br><br>
I've decided to sign up for the rappelling class after talking to the instructor. He reassured me that I won't be sore for my half marathon, which is a week later. The hardest part is climbing back up the rims to go again. So Jen and I are going to give it a whirl and see how we like it. I hope I don't chicken out when the time comes to back over the cliff!<br><br>
Pilates and yoga on tap for today.

The body was a bit too tired to wake up to go for a run this morning, so I folded my butterfly wings in place and slept some more.<br><br>
I love reading run postings like Rose today. Just perfect.<br><br>
Butterfly hugs for <b><span>REST</span></b>ing to Lynden and all who are resting today.<br><br>
Happy Birthday to Mr.Choovie.<br><br>
Happy carboloading to the "Del Sol" team. Don't forget your sun blocks.<br><br>
Later today I am aiming for a...<span>whisper quiet feet swooshing on the pavement run...just like Steve had.</span><br><br>
Millbot...take care my friend.

Good Morning Kicksters! Mustang Mom running before coffee? I have to get a cup as soon as I get up to get my heart started.<br><br>
Mike hope that you get over that cold soon. When I was living on the Wasatch front, I often had sinus problems and felt like a cold was coming on but I think the polutents that settle in down there in the winter is the culprit.<br><br>
This months Scientific American MIND has several excellant articals on how the brain works. Of interest was about our perception of time. My interest is in how it applies to cadence and running in general. When we run and especially on difficult terrain, everything rely's on accurate calculation of time and distance in 3 demensional space, the results are perfect unless we think about it. If we think about time we can be close up to about 3 seconds. If we are busy time passes faster. I don't recall if there was mention of age and our perception of time, but most folks including myself percieve time as passing faster as we age. My own theory on that is that we probably unconciously percieve moments in time as a fraction of the amount of time that we have been alive. This brings me back to cadence.<br><br>
How do we percieve cadence? Do I use intellect? Is there a natural timer that controls that and is that timer effected by age? What I have noticed when I go from a metronome at a musically correct setting, that I can go to music at a different beat and maintain the same cadence and still be in time with the music. I don't work that out intellectually.<br><br>
In Noaks book there is some interesting stuff on energy being stored during footplant and then released when pushing off. My question here is, how long does the muscles store this energy? This really could be key to why it is important to have a fast cadence. Perhaps with a slow cadence, most of the energy has been released before the push off.<br><br>
Some of these ideas for me seems to reinforce the importance of developing a fast cadence and practicing it. Perhaps as I age, my perception of time is reflected in my cadence and may require that I relearn it periodically.<br><br>
Good Runs All, Larry

Sabino Canyon, Arizona<br><br>
7.4 miles with mcsolar<br>
33 min on the way up, 28 back down<br>
Splashed through frigid streams of snowmelt, startled some deer, saw the tops of the saguaro catch the sunrise.<br>
Great way to start the morning. Will post a pic later.
